Leroy was born Feb. 17, 1927 in Chalk Mountain, Texas to Irene (Walker) and Robert Lee Worrell. He grew up in the Chalk Mountain community where he developed a strong work ethic. Leroy married Dixie Stasey in 1948 and this year they celebrated 71 years of marriage. He was a U.S. Navy veteran who proudly served his country during World War II. In 1947, he began working for General Dynamics in Fort Worth, Texas and retired as superintendent of final assembly in 1987. He then moved back to the Chalk Mountain area where he enjoyed many happy years ranching, raising cattle and gardening. He loved nature, horses, rodeos and the western way of life.
Leroy cherished his family above all and will remain in our hearts as a generous, fun, kind-hearted and honorable man who will forever be an inspiration to all who knew him.
